The Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber Posters Might Be Signaling Big Things For Reva

"Obi-Wan Kenobi" will pick back up with its titular Jedi (played by Ewan McGregor) a decade after the events of 2005's "Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith." However, McGregor's Obi-Wan isn't the only character fans should expect to see wielding a lightsaber in "Kenobi." In addition to its eponymous hero, the Disney+ series is also set to feature a number of powerful, red lightsaber-wielding Imperial Inquisitors, including pre-existing "Star Wars" characters like the Grand Inquisitor (Rupert Friend) and the Fifth Brother (Sung Kang). Hayden Christensen is also, notably, set to appear as Darth Vader in "Kenobi."

In addition to those established characters, "Obi-Wan Kenobi" is also set to introduce Reva (Moses Ingram). The character, an Imperial Inquisitor known as the Third Sister, has been heavily featured in the early trailers for "Obi-Wan Kenobi," and is expected to be one of its central antagonists. As of now, little is actually known about Reva, who is one of several new "Star Wars" characters set to make their debut in "Kenobi."

That said, a new set of posters for "Obi-Wan Kenobi" may offer a small hint at Reva's allegiances and overall arc in the Disney+ series.

Reva may not be as villainous as Obi-Wan Kenobi's other Inquisitors

In anticipation of the show's premiere, the official Twitter account for "Obi-Wan Kenobi" recently gave "Star Wars" fans the chance to unlock five lightsaber posters for the series (via The Direct). Each poster highlights a different character's lightsaber, with one spotlighting Darth Vader's iconic weapon and another focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi's. The Grand Inquisitor and the Fifth Brother were both given lightsaber posters as well, as was Moses Ingram's Reva. However, the posters for the Grand Inquisitor and the Fifth Brother simply list their Inquisitor rankings as their names, while Reva's uses her actual name.

This detail may very well mean nothing, but it does suggest that there is something that separates Reva from her fellow Inquisitors in "Obi-Wan Kenobi." There's no telling what that could be right now, but it's possible that the poster's use of her actual name may be a subtle sign that Reva won't always be on the side of the Empire in "Obi-Wan Kenobi." It could, alternatively, just be an attempt on Lucasfilm's part to try and make sure Reva feels like her own, distinct person amidst the Disney+ series' Inquisitor-heavy cast.

For her part, Ingram hasn't yet hinted that Reva will experience an allegiance shift in "Obi-Wan Kenobi." When speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Ingram even teased Reva's connections to the Grand Inquisitor and Darth Vader, saying, "They share a common dark-side goal. They're on the same team." That doesn't mean Reva won't betray her Imperial cohorts at any point in "Obi-Wan Kenobi," but it does add another layer of uncertainty to whatever fan theories may be circulating online right now about Ingram's character.

Fortunately, fans will get to learn more about Reva and her goals when "Obi-Wan Kenobi" premieres Friday, May 27 on Disney+.
